95th ANNUAL CHARLES COUNTY FAIR, Page 3 Enter online at www.charlescountyfair.com As Fair President I have the privilege, honor and pleasure to invite everyone to not only come to the Charles County Fair but to experience participating in it. On behalf of my fellow directors and volunteers of this nonprofit 501(c)3 corporation, we encourage you all to participate as exhibitors this year and hope that the fair catalog will assist you in highlighting your best talents and skills by placing entries in this year’s fair. We welcome you to come visit with family, friends and neighbors as we jam pack the four days of Charles County Fair Week. The Fair provides many areas of interests for the whole family to enjoy. Both young and old will appreciate and enjoy the festive and social environment with daily entertainment, contests, shows, demonstrations, displays, foods and goods offered by a variety of fair vendors. We are always looking for and hoping to see you all each year, here at this great Charles County tradition. Come and be a part of 95 years of “Family Traditions”. The Fair would like to thank all of those dedicated fair volunteers and members who have made our Fair possible for the past 95 years. I hope that you may one day come and help with this all-volunteer endeavor. I also thank those volunteering at the fair through other volunteer organizations as well. Organizations like the Agricultural Fair Board, MAAFS/Maryland Association of Agricultural Fairs and Shows, UME/Cooperative Extension, Farm Bureau, Soil Conservation, 4-H and many MDA depart- ments. Without all of our volunteers, the Fair could not provide the many programs and events to you or our community throughout the year.

To our local business supporters thank you for making this fair better serve its community whether it was as a fair spon- sor, vendor, advertiser or contributor. We thank our U.S. military who provide our continued freedom and protection - THANK YOU! Remember to “Like” us on Facebook and Twitter. Please join us this September 13-16 where the fair will again showcase the best of our community and county. Remember to save time and money by riding the shuttle bus to the Fair, with stops located behind the courthouse in La Plata.

Glenn R. Belmore President, Charles County Fair Board WELCOME TO THE BEST FAMILY ENTERTAINMENT IN CHARLES COUNTY! The Charles County Fair Board is honored to dedicate the 2018 Fair Catalog to Ruth Louise Abell. We bid farewell to a lovely lady who volunteered many years as Superintendent in the Baked Goods Department. Louise was known for her delicious champion coconut cake. She devoted her time to service to the Marbury Church of God and Tenth District Fire Depart- ment Ladies Auxiliary.She cooked every week for Bingo at the Fire Department. Louise will be remembered in the community for her kindness to family and friends. When the Fair had the fire Louise donated a quilt she made for us to have for a raffle at the Kris Kringle to cover some of our expenses. Our Exhibitors will miss Louise greeting them with a beautiful smile and a twinkle in her eyes.

A Tribute to Ruth Louise “Weeze” Abell

These general requirements are summarized below. Requirements Apply to All Livestock and Poultry: Livestock is defined as those species of animals used for human food or fiber or those species of animals used for service to humans. This includes but is not limited to cattle, sheep, new world camelids (llamas, alpacas, vicunas, and guanacos), goats, bison, privately owned cervids, swine, equine, and rabbits. Livestock does not include dogs, cats and exotic pets. Poultry is defined as any living domestic bird raised for food or other purposes including, but not limited to, chicken, turkeys, ostriches, emus, rheas, cassowaries, any other ratite, waterfowl and game birds.

ANIMAL REJECTION POLICY Animals may be rejected from an exhibition, either denied entry or removed from the exhibition, as described below: a. FAILURE TO PROVIDE COMPLETED DOCUMENTATION IS GROUNDS FOR REJECTION. b. A SKIN LESION SUSPICIOUS OF RINGWORM TO BE CONSIDERED NO LONGER CONTAGIOUS TO OTHER ANIMALS OR PEOPLE, NEW WOOL OR HAIR MUST COMPLETELY COVER THAT LESION. c. Livestock with clinical signs of infectious or contagious diseases or exter- nal parasites are not permitted entry or allowed to remain at the exhibition. Clinical signs include but are not limited to: active lesions of ringworm with resulting loss of hair, sore mouth, sore nose, caseous lymphadenitis, prolapse, mange or multiple warts easily visible without close examination. d. Suspicion of communicable disease is adequate grounds for rejection. Confirmed diagnosis is not required, since timely removal of suspicious ani- mals is required by law to protect the remaining animals. e. Exposed animals may be rejected: If it is believed that there is a potentially serious communicable disease present, all animals originating with the sus- pect animal may be rejected. Vesicular diseases are of particular concern. f. All decisions are final.

g. All parties involved will be notified of all rejections, including exhibit sponsors and supervisors. h. Animal rejections can be made by MDA Animal Health veterinarians or field inspectors, private veterinarians contracted by the show, Maryland Extension employees or individuals designated by the fair or show as a ‘responsible person.’ QUESTIONS?

Juice is of a thick syrupy con- sistency completely surrounding the fruit.. In general, 3/4 lb. of sugar to 1 lb. of fruit is used. CONSERVES — SCORE CARD Conserves are a jam-like product made of two or more fruits. They often contain nuts or raisins. They are made of very whole or pieces of fruit cooked or jammed into a mixture of an even, soft consistency, the liquid jelly-like in charac- ter. Name and flavor of the conserve is that of the dominant fruit. All jams, butters, marmalades, preserves and conserves sealed, or in standard pint or half pint jars without paraffin.

95th ANNUAL CHARLES COUNTY FAIR, Page 59 Enter online at www.charlescountyfair.com The Charles County 4-H program is for boys and girls ages 8-18. Younger children may participate in our non-competitive Clover program for ages 5-7. All ages are as of January 1 of the current year. 4-H programs have exciting club and special interest programs, activi- ties, and events that support learning by doing. 4-H PLEDGE I pledge my HEAD to clearer thinking, my HEART to greater loyalty, my HANDS to larger service, and my HEALTH to better living, for my club, my community, my country, and my world.

4-H MOTTO “To Make the Best Better” “Learn by Doing” 4-H COLORS GREEN and WHITE Green represents life, springtime and youth. White symbolizes purity. THE 4-H MISSION The goal of 4-H is to help youth learn everyday living skills through planned “learning by doing” expe- riences. 4-H offers many project areas but the current focus is on three main mission areas: SET (Science, Engineering, & Technology), Healthy Living, and Citizenship. While helping youth grow and develop, adult volunteers also develop as individuals. 4-H is one of the educational programs of the University of Maryland Extension. 4-H is: a. Informal and out of school b. Organized and directed by volunteer community leaders c. Composed of clubs and small groups of 5 or more members and is family-oriented d. Supervised by professional staff 4-H projects allow youth to learn skills and grow as individuals: a. Projects are developed at the University of Maryland and other land grant universities throughout the country b. Project groups promote skill development, team- work and social development The 4-H club is guided by volunteers who work with professional Extension staff: a. Volunteers may teach projects b. Some volunteers organize the club and are responsible for the educational programs c. Other volunteers provide support for the total program d. 4-H educators teach volunteers to perform their roles 4-H is publicly supported by county, state and fed- eral governments. Private resources, both human and material, are used to enrich the learning experiences of youth and adults.

ESSENTIAL ELEMENTS OF YOUTH DEVELOPMENT There are eight essential elements that define a 4-H Youth Development program. These elements fit into four basic ideals that yield positive outcomes in youth, adults and communities. They are: 1. Independence — Youth need to know they are able to influence people and events through decision-mak- ing and action. 2. Belonging — Current research emphasizes the impor- tance for youth to have opportunities for long-term consistent relationships with adults other than parents. This research suggests that belonging may be the single, most powerful, positive ingredient we can add to the lives of youth.

3. Generosity — Youth need to feel their lives have meaning and purpose. By participating in 4-H community service and citizenship activities, youth can connect to communities and learn to give back to others. 4. Mastery — In order to develop self-confidence, youth need to feel and believe they are capable and must experience success at solving problems and meet- ing challenges. The 4-H PROJECT The project is the foundation for learning experiences. Projects are designed so individuals can progress at their own pace through learning opportunities. With the guid- ance of parents, volunteers or teen leaders, knowledge is applied to practical life experiences. Projects put the hands and mind to work. Most projects have been designed with several levels so that a member may advance to more diffi- cult and challenging experiences.

The three core subject areas include Animal Sciences, Environmental Sciences/Natural Resources, and Human Sciences. HOW TO BECOME INVOLVED IN 4-H 4-H’ers live in every part of the county from Nanjemoy to Hughesville and Waldorf to Cobb Island, on farms, in rural areas and in towns. Girls and boys ages 8-18 are eligible. Children ages 5-7 may participate in the 4-H Clover program. To learn more about 4-H while at the fair, stop by the 4-H Building. Sign up to attend one of our 4-H Information Nights which will be offered this fall.

THE 4-H CLUB The 4-H Club offers “learning by doing” experiences to practice skills in subject matter, teamwork, leadership, and citizenship. Subject matter skills come through proj- ect work in small groups, at the club meeting, at home and in the community. Teamwork is learned through planning and implementing activities such as community service or fund-raising projects. Leadership and citizenship skills are learned through serving as an officer or a committee member. Community Club — Usually organized in a small geographic area for traveling convenience of those attending meetings. The club meets throughout the year under the direction of volunteer leaders. Its officers include a president, vice president, secretary, treasurer and reporter. Members, parents, and volunteer leaders determine what the annual club calendar will include, such as monthly meetings, project group meetings, spe- cial activities, community service projects and county activities.

Special Interest/Project Clubs — Their main focus is on a particular project area, such as dog, rabbit, fishing, or shooting sports — archery, shotgun, and air rifle. Depending on the particular club, they may meet throughout the year just as a community club or they may only meet for a specific number of times at a cer- tain time of the year. BECOME A CHARLES COUNTY 4-H VOLUNTEER Share your knowledge, time, and talents with young people, our future leaders. One strength of 4-H is the personal touch that volunteers contribute to the lives of young people. Volunteers, who work directly with youth or support the program in hundreds of other ways, create immeasurable impacts. The volunteer leader’s influence in 4-H is often not realized for many years, but is ultimately recognized by the 4-H’er. There are many opportunities to volunteer in 4-H. You can travel, make new friends, learn new subject-matter skills, develop organizational and leadership skills and become recog- nized as an influential community leader.
